Amazing

Following Theresa's lead I was doing some blog maintenance and added a "finished quilt section" to my blog and was amazed to find out that I have finished (not started and then not finished)) ten quilts this year - that makes me very happy!!

Some favourites

I found a rangeof shots of the small nine patches that I was working in and I love them so much that I thought I would share - I am particularly pleased with the black and white 'onions' hand screened by me - a first and probably a last
- but preserved forever in my scrappy nine patch quilt!!!

Rasberrry and Lime

Latest quilt - quilted and edged - still the hand sewing to go but I am so slow at that that it will be Christmas before it is finished -and that is a scary thought
